Midgard Surprise surprises everyone, positively! Weather, route conditions and our guide’s expertise determine the itinerary. Popular routes go deep into absorbing Þórsmörk and into the enveloping shadowlands of Eyjafjallajökull, offering extraordinary encounters with raw, remote nature.
Þórsmörk (Valley of Thor) is located amongst three icecaps, Mýrdalsjökull, Tindfjallajökull and Eyjafjalljökull. Passing under Eyjafjallajökull’s roots, crossing glacial rivers, viewing Gígjökull, all is exhilarating.
Eyjafajallajökull’s summit crater (active in 2010) offers spectacular views into Iceland’s interior, surrounding icecaps and towards the Westman Islands.
Another possible destination is Landmannalaugar. Once there you will encounter a remote and rugged volcanic landscape of orange & cream (rhyolite), blue and green mountains. Sitting atop the Mid Atlantic Ridge, natural hot springs abound.
All our open day tours are also available as private day tours.
